Former Cop Faces Felony Charges over ATV Joyride
There are crazies in Florida. It seems like we are always reading stories about people going off the deep end in that state, from drunks leading police on a golf cart chase, to drunken parents ruining their kids' birthday parties. This time though, it's a fired cop who's in trouble over an ATV joyride, where he allegedly ran over 2 people.
30 yr old Derek Kuilan and another officer posed with some women who were having a bachelorette party at an area hotel, when according to an affidavit, Kuilan then offered a ride to the bride-to-be on his ATV. The 2 were riding on the beach at around 5 a.m., with the vehicle's lights turned off. That's when according to the report, the ATV plowed into 2 people who were near the water getting their feet wet.
The 2 suffered serious injuries, one of which included a broken femur that required surgery. Kuilan faces an arraignment on the charges next month. One woman at the hotel bar said the 2 cops were acting so crazy, she thought they couldn't be real cops, and must have been part of the party "entertainment."
Remind me to stay off the beach in Miami.
